TLJ was caught looking less than pleased when Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell mocked his movie at the Golden Globes. In fact, as the rest of the audience visibly shook with laughter, Tommy stared stony-faced and seriously grumpy-looking at the stage. Will and Kristen's skit was considered to be one of the more amusing pre-award moments. But not for Tommy it seems.
Kristen and Will were reading out the details of the ‘Best Performance By An Actress in a Motion Picture, Comedy or Musical and the pair of comics arrived onstage feigning incredulity at where they found themselves. As they described the movies that they clearly hadn’t watched, they read out Meryl Streep’s name, for Hope Springs, deliberately pronouncing her name wrong and describing the movie as being about a sassy sheriff, named Hope Springs (it’s actually about a married couple (Streep and Tommy Lee Jones) who undergo counselling to work on their ailing, 30 year marriage. Unlike most awards interludes, this one was actually funny.
Sadly, Tommy Lee Jones left his sense of humour at home and now he’s paying the price, as his grumpy face is all over the internet and he’s even been teamed up with fellow meme-dweller, Grumpy Cat.
Watch Kristen Wiig and Will Ferrell at the Golden Globes - laugh, where Tommy Lee Jones failed...
